  3. Sandra

    I wished the stores here wouldn’t have quit cqrrying this product. It’s the best. Couldn’t make my ham gravy without it.

  4. Randy

    Damn shame you have to order it online.

  5. Jere

    I love this seasoning!!!!! the best flavor, for everything you would use ham flavoring in–soup, beans,casseroles, etc. It’s hard to find but it is worth it!!!!Try it !!!

    I haven’t tried this yet, but have tasted it at one of our church dinners. It really makes a wonderful addition to green beans and since there is only my mom and me, I can’t buy a whole ham to get the shank and can’t find them in stores anymore, I needed to find this ham base. Without it, my dads bean soup doesn’t have the right flavor. I would also like to comment on the quick service.Soup bases were well packaged and arrived very quickly. This company is excellent.

    I just found this product last week! I’ve long since used the beef and chicken versions. Was making a bean soup from the leftover bone and pickin’s from a picnic ham. Nice soup but not the right flavor. Found at local Safeway store, added a savory, smokey, perfect flavor to my dinner. WOW! Opens lots of possibilities fo soups with nice veggies, beans, a smaller amount of ham or pork, and the lovely BTB flavoring.

    Best I have ever used!!!!

  9. Joanie

    I have taught many people to cook and most of my recipes are Cajun ones. One of the main staples in most Cajun’s diet is beans or peas. I recommend this bouillon instead of any traditional meats seasoning ie ham, salt pork or sausage. I have given many jars away and been thanked profusely. I love it.

    We have used this ever since I first stumbled on it. Everything from beans to greens is seasoned with ham or bacon here and this is a great substitute for the fat involved. Much to my chagrin my store stopped carrying it and now I find it on line. Super.!!!

    Love this product!

  12. Jo-Ann

    I received this as part of a Christmas gift and I useed it in Ham & Beans soup, ham and collard greens. The flavor was unbelievable! It enhanced the wonderful taste that was already in the soup and collard greens to the next level. I’m already a very good cook and now I am better then very good. I could not find the product in my local grocery mart and was very happy to see on this site along with other wonderful products that I am finding.

  13. Robert
